Tinpot-Dictator-Drug-Runner to Meet US State Dept Folks

This character Zelaya is 'our kinda guy'?

The story's out there, and pretty clear: he tried to pull off a blatantly un-Constitutional 'referendum' to keep himself in office. Because of his actions, the Honduran court, acting in concert with the Honduran legislature and military, picked him up and escorted him out of the country. He will be criminally prosecuted should he return.

By the way, many of the legislators who voted FOR deposing him are members of his own party.

So what will happen when he arrives in the USA?

Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya will likely meet US officials in Washington, though not with President Barack Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, officials said Tuesday

Tea and crumpets will be served, no doubt.

And how will he pay for his trip to the USA?

Glad you asked!

The regime that ousted Manuel Zelaya in Honduras claimed Tuesday that the deposed president allowed tons of cocaine to be flown into the Central American country on its way to the United States.

"Every night, three or four Venezuelan-registered planes land without the permission of appropriate authorities and bring thousands of pounds ... and packages of money that are the fruit of drug trafficking," its foreign minister, Enrique Ortez, told CNN en Espanol.

Venezuela....gee, that sounds familiar.
